Although we have not heard much from Microsoft with regards to Windows 10 22H2, we do know for a fact that the company will release an update for this old operating system.
After all, Redmond has promised to keep supporting Windows 10 until late 2025, at least.
What this means is that users can expect more feature updates for the OS to arrive in the near and distant future. It’s another story entirely whether these updates deserve to be labelled as feature updates or not, keeping in mind their lack of new additions.
Anyway, one such feature update is about to take flight soon, in the form of Windows 10 version 22H2.
As confirmed, the latest optional updates released for the old OS pave the way for this major new version.

This feature update is based on the now familiar build 19045 of Windows 10, which is another hint that it will not bring anything major in terms of new additions. In fact, by the looks of things, version 22H2 may not bring any consumer facing capabilities at all to Windows 10.
Point being, this new version simply an enablement package that that does not add any new features.
Action has very much shifted to Windows 11, where version 22H2 is the talk of the town these days. Then there is also the upcoming Sun Valley 3 release of the operating system that promises a range of new features and option for the current OS.
Those who download KB5014666 on their device can activate version 22H2 on their system by entering some commands in the Command Prompt as an Administrator. This will force enable the latest version of the operating system on your PC.
For regular consumers, though, there is simply no sense in enabling the next update before Microsoft officially releases it.
This is just a confirmation that Redmond still cares about Windows 10, enough to keep it refreshed.
